 SR 49 Confluence Oversized Truck Update 

Regarding oversized trucks in the canyon, the El Dorado County Transportation Commission (EDCTC) adopted the SR 49 Confluence Study at their meeting on 3/2/23. The first priority in the plan is to collaborate with Caltrans to upgrade signage to prevent oversized trucks in the canyon. Second priorities include: 1) advocate for CHP to increase enforcement and patrols on the corridor, and 2) change the Federal designation of SR 49 to not allow oversized trucks on SR 49 in the Confluence.

The meeting agenda and SR 49 Confluence Study can be found here:

We will keep the community updated as we work with the EDCTC toward implementing these changes.
